I am trying to perform a point in time on a specific database using a snapshot and mysql's transaction logs. I am using the following to pull statements from the time of the snapshot to the time of recovery:
mysqlbinlog --database=**database** --start-datetime="$start_datetime" --stop-datetime="$stop_datetime" list_of_binlog_file_names
The resulting statements that mysqlbinlog produces include INSERT/UPDATE/DELETE statements for another database that has the form:
INSERT INTO **database**_reporting.tablename VALUES (data);
So functionally I'm getting statements from 2 different databases, one is our production database, the other is our reporting database, differentiated by nomenclature by the '_reporting'. It would appear to me that our application is inserting to the secondary database while still using the primary one and the binlogs associate both statements with the primary database.
Am I correct that mysqlbinlog is going to read out statements for both databases as long as they are executed after a
USE primary_database;? Is there a way to separate out the ones for the reporting database using mysqlbinlog? I have searched quite a bit- I may be barking up the wrong tree here. Let me know if I can clarify the question.
